I usually don't buy the first model year. I had the 2001 Raptor transmission woes but I have been waiting since 2011 for them to come out with the YXZ. Hence why I own a 2012 900 xp. I'm just going to have to take a gamble. Hopefully they got it right. I will make sure to put it through hell before the 6 month warranty runs out. I'm sure I will find any weak links by then.Congrads! The more I see, the more I want one too. Exactly what was needed in the segment. Trying to hold out for the second model year though.
